. that's allstate's stand. are you in good hands? megyn: after katrina hit the gulf coast everybody wanted water and ice. after sandy the hot commodity is gasoline. some people driving 50 miles just to fill up the tank. >> reporter: a travel catch-22. you have roads being opened, you have gas stations in most cases that are not open. and the reason they are not open is gas stations need power to pump the fuel and across the tristate area there is very little power to go around. many have likened this to the gas crunch of the 1970s. remember the long lines? people lining up to fill up. there are 200 cars long, the lines to get gasoline in some cases to fill these things up. they are trying to get gas to run their generators because they don't have power antigen rayer toes burn between 4-5 gallons per hour. that's why people are on foot. there are also people filling up their cans to fill up their cars. >> if you drive around in circles you will run out much gas owner. sitting in line in the truck it burns 5 gals. >> reporter: the gas stations are worried about their gas supply being

company is forensic weather consultants and i've worked on a lot of hurricane related cases, katrina, hurricane wilma and ike, for the insurance companies, and also, for the attorneys and home owners pan one thing that is most difficult is the flood insurance, and when most people buy home owners insurance policy it covers wind and that alone doesn't cover flood. so, place that is didn't have flood insurance may not be able to collect from their insurance policy. so, it's much easier to collect and get insurance coverage for wind storm related events. even though, a lot of the insurance companies have what they call a wind storm deductible, which means, whether it's a named storm such as a hurricane, when it makes landfall or not, will determine what percentage of the deductible, the home owner has to pay. >> and howard, tom sullivan here, you jumped on point i was going to make about how flood insurance is, two parts about it, one, i used to have a home years ago, that was in a flood plain, designated as such. so, i had to have flood insurance, but even that, the flood insurance was
to katrina and crazy storms like that and just amazing and i mean we weren't kidding when we were saying five to seven days, may be two weeks for some people and i know everyone went to the grocery stores and grabbed whatever they could. the way i've seen it, it plays out, the first day is interesting. you don't have power. the second day you start to get a little annoyed as you have no more ice and things start to go bad, day three, four and five, people just start getting angry and it's not fun and it gets ugly in a hurry. >> let me ask you just really quickly because the storm is continuing to move and i got this update on the potential impact in the midwest. chicago lake shore flood warning, high winds in indiana, extreme high winds in northwest ohio. >> damage in cleveland yesterday. >> 23,000 without power in michigan. a village in wisconsin. evacuated at least partially due to sandy. how long are we going to continue to feel the effects of sandy. >> a little bit in those areas but not as bad as yesterday and people saying lake erie was at the highest levels of off of cleveland they've

goods in a crisis. he told the story about people in cape cod bringing television s sets for katrina victims. it was so detached from reality. and once again, it's the empathy gap. he doesn't either have the judgment or the experience or the heart, i don't know what it is, to really know what's needed. you can campaign for the red cross and ask for donation, but even i knew it was ridiculous. >> he didn't have to do this in ohio at the site of a campaign event. that seemed inappropriate. >> excellent point. >> just happened to go to a swing state. >> if chris christie can put aside political conversation, why can't the leader of the republican party? i mean if this guy wants to be the leader of the free world, he's got to get face to face with the people going through the devastation. >> i certainly think he should answer questions, but the fema policy that's so obvious he needs to explain what me he meant in the debate. he avoided 14 questions on the fema policy, which is inappropriate. >> he's walking into a storm. good to have you with us. thank you. >>> there's a lot more coming
a look at what's going on. the first thing, we noticed how much it felt like katrina to us there are differences, there are no casualties here, but it felt like new orleans going down the watery streets and looking in the window, seeing men, women, and children waving at us. most of them were smiling. the reason they are smiling, the water is receding. it will continue to recede and perhaps as early as tomorrow, they will be able to start walking out of their houses. not guaranteed just yet. we saw scores of people waving at us, waiting to get out of their home. we saw a case of some people trying to leave. seemed confused. two people driving vehicles through four feet of water. they got stuck, then started pushing their cars. a police officer with us on the front loader got out, took the woman, put the woman on her shoulder, brought her to the shovel we were sitting in. the mayor and i helped pull the woman in that's the situation. incredible. right behind me, people in the dark and the cold waiting to be able to come out of their homes safely. >> it's amazing as you tell

hurricane katrina days, used to run fema when katrina happened. he said this about what the president is doing. my guess is that he wants to gt ahead of it, he doesn't want to be accused of not getting on top of it, paying attention to it or playing politics in the middle of it. he went on to say thabout benghazi. what do you make of this? >> it's interesting coming from someone who has an abysmal record on handling emergencies. where i'm from, my family was evacuated, are happy that the president jumped in and moved quickly in response to this storm. we don't take too much credence from somebody with a record like mr. brown. >> thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> interesting question to have about fema. reporters throwing questions at governor romney yesterday. they were asking him a number of times -- he wouldn't state -- do you think this is problematic for the governor? >> i don't think so at all. first of all, let me just respond to jen. she just blew off the criticism about benghazi. you listen to her saying in a crisis the president hunkered down in the white house, gett
overseas in afghanistan and that have served time with katrina down in new orleans, and they said it doesn't look much different. i would agree with them. even just walking around and having it be dead silent and the hising of natural gas coming out of the ground because of broken mains. we are still as of yesterday, still in search and rescue mode trying to make sure that everybody's out of their house and safe. before the -- they allow people to actually come back. it's a very, very frustrating time, but i can tell you kind of what -- you were talking about with ralph -- clive on the earlier call, the people -- i had the opportunity last night to go to some shelters and talk to some people. they are amazed at the amount of people that are willing to help and total strangers. from the time i was there just -- random citizens just walking into the shelters and donating goods and trying to help their fellow man. it's unfortunate it takes a tragic situation like this to bring the best out of people. host: congressman runyan, what is the best way that the federal government in your view can h

. and if you don't, there's a disaster. let's just look at what happened at hurricane katrina. >> yeah. >> let's look at what happened to hurricane katrina. you know what, though? again this is part of a bigger problem with mitt romney right now and republicans and democrats that are afraid to talk about how you really save this country and tackle the debt. instead, they talked about silly things like cutting fema, cutting big bird or saying we're going to take care of all of our problems by raising some taxes on rich people. instead of talking about saving this country for the next generation. >> and also not being honest about defense. >> and both sides not being honest about defense. >> okay. thank you. >> how's that? >> good. >> i don't define fema as quote big government. >> right. >> i define entitlement programs by their numbers that are going to cripple us as, quote, big government. >> "wall street journal," barack obama -- when the history of this administration is written, maybe someone will note the difference. here is that man who promised a transformative presidency, and it amount
you compare this to other events you've seen? >> let's see. katrina -- or irene last year this area also flooded. but not nearly as bad as this. the clean up, it's pretty much drained within a day or so. and lost no electricity last year. this one we were -- you know, we don't know the epa. >> reporter: dan, thanks very much. good luck to you. wolf, there's one resident, one business owner here determine today recover. others here have an amazing sense of community spirit. these are all community volunteers doing all this work largely responsible for the clearing of the streets. as i mentioned, just a couple hours ago this water was up to my knees, up to the knees of these volunteers who waded out here in some very, very unhealthy and almost dangerous water because it has so much sewage and chemicals and garbage in it. >> brian, we'll get back to you in hoboken, new jersey. let's head back to manhattan. we've re-established our contact with dr. sanjay gupta. he's at bellevue hospital, sanjay, 700 patients now need to be evacuated because they've lost power, emergency generators at b
perspective, there was a sturgeon that happened during hurricane katrina, not in new orleans but in south mississippi that was higher than 30 feet. the highest ever recorded. and that wiped out entire communities for a mile inland. here we are talking up to 11 feet and if it happens and the surge happens the way they have said, it will flood much of lower manhattan, it's already flooded the fdr drive along the side and it's just beginning because high tide is 45 minutes away. atlantic city's public safety director says much of that city is now under water. some pictures of road 30. one of the major roads into atlantic city. a writer for the philadelphia enquirer newspaper nearby sent us these pictures. part of the city's historic board walk is now in the sea. other parts have collapsed there. and the new jersey governor chris christie ordered all of atlantic city's casinos to shut down. he did that, it's only the fourth time officials have closed those casinos since the city legalized gambling more than three decades ago. storm chaser dennis sherrod joins us now. is he live in atlantic ci
